`A gem of a book. It is very useful as an introductory text, a quick reference for busy students (and lecturers!) and those wishing to study in more detail.'
-- Dave Mason, Lecturer in Social Work, Staffordshire University
This third edition eloquently expands the critical conversations in mental health scholarship in an accessible yet sophisticated way. It will provide readers with a thorough grounding in the traditional aspects of the discipline and contemporary developments.
-- Dr Paul Taylor, Senior Lecturer in Criminology, University of Chester
This is the best book I have read in some time. Pilgrim does not put mental health in a nutshell and should be commended on his approach.
-- Tony Barlow, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing, Birmingham City University
